Usually an E.P. will have a couple good tracks and a bunch of filler that were left off the album for good reason. That’s not at all the case on Buckwild’s  Presents EP, a companion release for his 2010 collaboration with Celph Titled, Nineteen Ninety Now.This is definitely a Buckwild release, and as such the production takes center stage.

Divided into two “sides” the first four tracks continue with Celph Titled featuring new tracks in the vein of Nineteen... Other than the LP version of “There Will Be Blood” there are no throwaways to be heard. If anything, it’s a wonder why some of these songs were left off. Following the aforementioned track is a remix which surpasses the original, capturing that classic 90’s sound that reminds you of warm weather and making your head nod. The posse cut features all of D.I.T.C. minus Big L, and two thirds of Brand Nubian’s original line up. These Songs are nothing short of incredible. It’s amazing to think that these beats sat around untouched for over a decade.
The second side is a compilation of 5 rare/unreleased remixes of singles from the early 90s/post-golden age of hip hop. Notable standouts are Diamond D’s collaboration with Tha Alkaholiks “The Next Level” and Kool G Rap & Nas’s “Fast Life”. The production has a darker, more Middle Eastern feel that gives the songs new life. This EP is a must for anyone who can’t get enough of the boom bap hip hop of the 90’s and fans of old D.I.T.C. like O.C., Showbiz & A.G. and Lord Finesse.
